News! NASA shows in a video how Perseverance ejects a piece of a rock sample for the first time. The Perseverence Rover, which has been on Mars for less than a year, has collected a large number of samples and rocks from Mars. Rocks that will be brought to Earth by a future NASA mission. But as the rover spun its drill, a piece of rock came out.
NASA said in a post on the rover's Instagram account that the images were collected by the rover's Mastcam-Z instrument on January 15, 2022, the 322nd day of March. The rover turned its drill and test tube to 9 degrees, at which time most likely a small piece left on the tube came out.
But Perseveranece did not stop to notice this tiny thing and continued his mission on Mars. He turned and extended the axis of the drill after dropping the piece of stone and went to see where the rocks were.
Perseverance landed on the Martian surface on February 18, 2021 around 20:55 UTC. The rover is part of NASA's mission, Mars 2020 exploration of Mars, the most Earth-like planet in the Solar System. Perseverance's main activities on Mars are explore Jezero Crater and gathering rocks from there. He also take selfies and make various analyzes of the Martian surface.
Good luck Perseverance!
